Alberta Ferretti brought chic-ness to the runway on the first day of the autumn/winter 19 shows in Milan. The Italian designer has a a slight change of gear in her last few shows and that’s something that seems to continue this season. While the core focal point of all her collections is to design for the chic, feminine woman, Ferretti has modernised this to evolve from cocktail dresses and gowns to stylish day wear that the woman of today can really wear.
For her latest collection we say elegant pieces that could be worn from day to night and while some had a casual feel they felt timelessly elegant and glamorous at the same time. Things kicked off with a colour palette of all white which evolved into Ferret’s statement pastel shades and subtle metallics.
While the old Ferretti would have sent a collection of dresses down the runway, this one was dominated by pant suits and trousers paired with smart jackets. Accessories came in the form of wide-brimmed hats that bridged the gap between masculinity and femininity.
Of course it wouldn’t be an Alberta Ferretti show without the odd red carpet gown which came towards the end of the show. Mirrored fabrics, metallics and cut-out mermaid style dresses were ultra feminine.
